To celebrate Italian Heritage Month in Canada, throughout the month of June, CIBPA of Niagara will be highlighting and promoting the services, contributions, and businesses of its many dedicated members of Italian descent! Our next feature is of longtime CIBPA of Niagara member and supporter, Anna Maria Raimondo, who represents her son, Gianmarco Raimondo, of the Racemondo Team. Gianmarco, 27, has been racing professionally for nearly 20 years. He also represents an effective marketing opportunity both on and off the race track, recently dovetailing his racing career with an international modelling career. As a successful racing driver, his career began with karting in Canada through to 2008, when he made his debut in single seater racing. In his debut season in the Formula BMW USA Series, Gianmarco claimed the "Rookie of the Year" title, winning the rookie championship. After placing 3rd in the overall championship the following year, Gianmarco headed to Europe to compete in Formula 3 Italia and European F3. Gianmarco’s F3 career culminated in him becoming European F3 Open Vice Champion in 2012. He saw this as a chance to move up the motorsport ladder and became a GP2 driver with Trident Racing for selected events through 2013. 2014 saw Gianmarco driving with Super Nova in AutoGP. 2015 was Gianmarco’s debut season in GT racing, competing with the prestigious manufacturer, Maserati, in the Pirelli World Challenge and their international Trofeo Series with the Granturismo MC GT4. In 2016, Raimondo returned from Europe and, in 2017, placed on the top of the podium at the Ultra 94 Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Canada by Yokohama, which was held during the Toronto Indy and televised on TSN. He continues to train and has his sights set on the upcoming season. For more information about Racemondo, visit www.racemondo.com, or connect with the team on Snapchat, Twitter, and Instagram!
